We propose combining memory saving techniques with traditional U-Net architectures to increase the complexity of the models on the Brain Tumor Segmentation (BraTS) challenge. The BraTS challenge consists of a 3D segmentation of a 240 \(\times \) 240 \(\times \) 155 \(\times \) 4 input image into a set of tumor classes. Because of the large volume and need for 3D convolutional layers, this task is very memory intensive. To address this, prior approaches use smaller cropped images while constraining the model’s depth and width. Our 3D U-Net uses a reversible version of the mobile inverted bottleneck block defined in MobileNetV2, MnasNet and the more recent EfficientNet architectures to save activation memory during training. Using reversible layers enables the model to recompute input activations given the outputs of that layer, saving memory by eliminating the need to store activations during the forward pass. The inverted residual bottleneck block uses lightweight depthwise separable convolutions to reduce computation by decomposing convolutions into a pointwise convolution and a depthwise convolution. Further, this block inverts traditional bottleneck blocks by placing an intermediate expansion layer between the input and output linear 1 \(\times \) 1 convolution, reducing the total number of channels. Given a fixed memory budget, with these memory saving techniques, we are able to train image volumes up to 3x larger, models with 25% more depth, or models with up to 2x the number of channels than a corresponding non-reversible network.
